Obsessed with: train table makeover

We bought this train table on Craigslist for $40.  I figured that it is sort of a short lived thing, and didn't feel like Charlie was really that in to trains.  It turns out, we use the table a lot, art projects, puzzles, etc.

I saw this idea in a magazine and adapted it for our table.  It was easy, quick, inexpensive, and looks cool too... plus the kids really like it!

Organized baby: 5 weeks to go

I am starting to think about baby annoucements and stationary.
I am really just browsing around online since we don't know if this baby is a boy or a girl.

I also am trying to find my address list.  We got a new computer in December and I think the list is saved on the old one, so I guess I am going to have to dig it up.

Obsessed with: this shirt

Just because I am at the end of this pregnancy, does not mean it's time to throw in the fashion towel, and just wear giant t-shirts and sweatpants.  I always feel my best in a cute ensemble.

While I want to look put together, I certainly don't want to make any maternity clothing investments at this point.  This weekend, I hit up Old Navy for a few inexpensive items to spruce up my maternity wardrobe.

I scored this great button-down, it isn't maternity, just a a size up.  I love it.  It's comfortable and light, and will be an easy shirt to wear after the baby is born too.

I wish it came in some more cute colors and patterns..  but I am loving this gingham.

Obsessed with: Tiny Toms

We bought these for the kids this weekend.  I am obsessed.

This is actually Charlie's second pair.  They are just so cute I can't handle it.
They got lots of compliments already too.

I also love that they are making the kid's ones now with a rubber bottom so they don't slip.

Organized baby: 6 weeks to go

I feel like I am really all ready for the baby...   the car seat is washed, hospital bag is packed, bed is set up, I have diapers, tons of white onesies, etc.  So for this week I couldn't really think of anything to do.

So here is a picture of me, with 6 weeks to go.
I can't figure out if that's a long time, or not so much.

Obsessed with: Target

Look at all these great back-to-school items I scored... I mean seriously, does it get any cuter?


They just arrived in the mail, and are even cuter in person!

Obsessed with: glow sticks

It is so hot here, I mean its been over 100 degrees nearly every day. 
At times like this, you need to come up with some creative indoor activities. 

How about glow sticks in the bath tub?
